HAPPY EASTER – ΚΑΛΟ ΠΑΣΚΑ – A WINDOW OF REMEMBRANCE

Easter (like the Day of the Panagia (15 August) and or Christmas as times) is a time where we put aside all of our biases, misgivings, petty hang-ups, hostile intentions, dislikes, those who we would not normally speak with because we have argued and spend it with family and friends. 

Some will be asked to attend the traditional lamb BBQ, others will be lucky to be with friends or family. Then those who want to follow the traditions but are unable to do so, then don’t worry about it as long as it’s in your heart and mind

For those who follow the traditional concept of Easter and its religious customs, I wish you well and may you spend it with family and friends.

For those who have lost contact with their heritage or don’t follow the Orthodox Easter traditions, i wish you all the happiness, joy and laughter

For those who pride themselves upon having Hellenic origins but don’t have the capacity or contact to celebrate the Orthodox Easter, I wish you and try to find your way back into the family.

Last of all for those in hospital, guests of the Australian government, on duty somewhere in the world and/or find themselves in a place other than with loved ones, do not despair for others are thinking of you. Be happy and think of the good times yet to come.  A copy of the article may be downloaded by clicking on: YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE GREEK TO CELEBRATE THE ORTHODOX EASTER
